DLSU-D joins UI GreenMetric amid challenges of COVID-19

De La Salle University-Dasmariñas will once again join the UI GreenMetric, even amid the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Members of the DLSU-D community have been mobilized to showcase the adaptability and resiliency of the University’s sustainable programs to the call of the times.

For this year, Universitas Indonesia (UI) updated several questions to assess the participating universities’ sustainable policies, programs, and impacts of universities to their communities.

We thank you as always for all the prayers and support to showcase to the world once again our university’s sustainability practices. May we be guided by St. John Baptist De La Salle in this mission," Campus Sustainability Office Director Joseph Dinglasan said in his letter to the community.

Last year, DLSU-D took the 91st position out of 780 participating universities worldwide.

DLSU-D also maintained its position as the top university in the Philippines when it comes to sustainability, proving its unparalleled commitment to green practices that are being adopted by the entire Lasallian community, together with its partners. It also maintained its strong position in Asia as the 26th most sustainable university in the region.

The UI Greenmetric World University Rankings is the first and only university rankings in the world that measures each participating university’s commitment to developing an ‘environmentally friendly’ infrastructure. It stringently reviews six indicators for each university, including setting and infrastructure, energy and climate change, waste, water, transportation, and education.

Since its establishment in 2017, the UI GreenMetric World University Rankings Network has grown and now has 35 national coordinators from 30 countries in Asia, Europe, Australia, and America.
